We had an excellent meal from starters to dessert. My salmon in particular was the best I’ve ever had but because the portion was so large I asked for a box to take it home with me.
As we paid the bill, not an inconsequential amount, I asked for my box. After a little flurry of conversation among the staff, the waiter told me it had been thrown away. At least half of my delicious dinner, enough to make another complete meal, was in the trash. I removed half of our generous tip from the table as we left.
